Home Frosting is beyond excited to announce that design veteran Mary McKell has joined our team.
The “savant” of everything home design and décor, Mary’s expertise in custom draperies and fine upholstery, bespoke antiques, period furniture, and signature decorative art will add a great new dimension to the Home Frosting superpowers.
Clients are already loving her depth of design knowledge and her astute eye for style that shines on every project she touches.
Born and raised in Jacksonville, Florida, Mary’s passion for beautiful aesthetics in the home & office first blossomed after a 20-year career in software development and project management in New York City. The transition into a full-time mom and volunteer presented new experiences and travels and gave her the time needed to focus on creating her dream home. Soon after, she knew designing and curating home interiors was her true calling.
Since 2010, Mary has been immersed in the world of home design and decorating. She was once recruited by a national textile company for her skills in fabric selection, technology, and application. She has also restored and renovated historic Florida properties and has worked with both homeowners and businesses to re-design and add personalized intention & soul to their environments.
A fanatic of “modern mix” Mary loves blending treasured antiques with mid-century and contemporary pieces, family heirlooms, or other sentimental elements to master a thoughtful, layered, timeless look.
When Mary is not working, you might catch her at a bustling estate auction, an off-the-beat gallery, or at her favorite bistro, sipping Cuban coffee.
